Leaving on a Jet Plane

Cidu Bill on Sep 30th 2010

I haven’t flown in just over 5 years. At the time, new airline regulations were tougher than when I flew two weeks after 9/11, and I have a feeling it’s even worse now. And of course there are the airlines’ latest penny-pinching measures.

So if you’ve flown recently, be straight with me: how horrendous a nightmare should I look forward to?

(Jet Blue from JFK to Crocodilebutt Florida, by the way)

Mislaid

Cidu Bill on Sep 30th 2010

Not only did Wednesday’s 9CW not cast any light on Tuesday’s (see “Pennies,” below), but it was a CIDU as well — and I was further confused when Timothy Carignan sent it to me with the heading “A New Standard For Arlo.”

Eye

Please join me in sending best wishes to Francesco Marciuliano who, while suffering from a serious eye problem, still managed to draw a comic based on that eye problem. Talk about devotion to one’s fans!

Directionless

Is this a “thing”? I’ve heard the “men won’t ask for directions” cliché of course — but “men have no sense of direction”? That’s a new one to me.
